Jogless Stripes

Today I got an email from one of my "graduated" students. She was having problems with knitting in the round and changing colors. So I found this information for her, and wanted to pass it on.

Jogless Stripes

I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day. For the first time in a long time the kids and I had a perfect weekend. I got to knit, and relax and drink Mango Margaritas. (fresh mangos, oh so good), grilled baby back ribs, had fresh corn on the cob and Sara made dessert. It was great. We laughed and had fun all weekend.

Hopefully I'll get off my butt and get some finished knitted pictures for you. Let's say, sometime time this week. (grin)

Your weekend sounds very relaxing and the mango margaritas very refreshing.

Thanks for the link about jogless stripes.

You must visit I just ran across her blog (she's a knitter) with a great dane. The title of the post Super-sized shows a pic of her great dane, Daphne.

My name is Susan Ripley and I am a working with Ripley Designs, Inc. on gathering knitting and crochet patterns for the 2009 Pattern-A-Day Calendars from Accord Publishing. I am contacting you today in the hopes that you will submit a pattern or hang the attached flyer somewhere in your store or post it to your website / BLOG / PODCAST to let your customers know about the design contest and the chance to get their designs published. You could also email the flyer if you have a mailing list. Patterns are accepted from individuals, shops, charities and yarn companies. There are no restrictions and the patterns can also be something that is currently being distributed for free.

Some of the yarn shops that have worked with us in the past have also offered fun pattern design/writing classes. This is a great way to get customers into your store while taking advantage of this great contest. $500 will be awarded as First place for both calendars; there are also 2nd and 3rd place prizes; and all contributors whose patterns are used will receive a 2009 calendar.

Please go to our website at and learn more about the submission requirements and our contest. If you have any questions, please contact me and I will gladly answer your questions. If your email program stripped the PDF, you can download the flyer at
